The ESQUELETO staffers get most excited when we acquire a new collection of antique jewelry. The exquisite artistry and craftsmanship of a bygone era cannot be matched, and the incredible histories attached to each piece are totally fascinating. We are thrilled to present our latest collection to you with these selections- our top ten favorites. 1. Flower Cluster Ring Best of both worlds: this striking ring has both the sultry character of the rose cut center diamond, and the brightly shining luster of the 11 brilliant cut diamonds in the surrounding halo.   2. ART DECO DIAMOND RING This exquisite platinum Art Deco shield ring is completely encrusted in 3.46 carats of... Read More

Justine & Nico

How did your engagement ring become yours? [Nico and I] agreed that I would do the proposing, which suited my feminism just fine. We talked about rings, and I told him I would head over to this shop I was following on IG called Esqueleto and pick out what I liked. Then, this past Christmas eve, in my hometown of Santa Fe, he surprised me with a proposal, spelled out in farolitos (the little brown bags with a candle inside that decorate the New Mexico houses at Christmastime), Will You Marry Me JMH?

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite artists and friends, Rachel Steiner. Rachel’s lovingly designed and crafted ceramics have become integrated into my daily lifestyle – my morning tea is drunk out of one of her perfect mugs; my dinner is eaten out of her exquisite bowls. Rachel will be exhibiting alongside her artist’s collective, Make. Do., this coming weekend at the West Coast Craft festival, and her work can be found 24/7 here at ESQUELETO. Alexis: How young were you when you knew you wanted to be an artist? Rachel: I started taking ceramic classes when I was in middle school thanks to my aunt. When I continued them into high school is when I began... Read More
